I am sure this has been posted in the past, but it now requires revisiting. I am looking for sub-frame connectors for my 78 cobra. I cannot find anyone still in business that makes them. Does anyone have any info on the subject?

There is a person theat goes by "Stumpy" on eBay that makes and sells them. I heard they are VERY nice. He can also be found on mustnagii.net, that actually might be the best place to find him.

i went through the same thing about 6 months ago. what i did was took a weld in set for a 79' to 93' and tweeked them a bit. on one end of the conector there is two upright tabs, this is your front. they have to be bent slightly outward together. the other end has two tabs also with one upright like the front which will be bent like the front. the other one is laying down at a 90 degree angle from the other one. cut this one off. be carefull when you are doing your fabrication as there is a left and right. i also took some 1 3/4 tubing and made a crossmember in between the conectors.

I had a local race car builder install mine. It is a pretty radical setup, but it really did the trick.

stumpy is impossible to find. He is not on e-bay and nobody seems to have a way to contact him that works.

Shot in the dark here, but did you try Competition Engineering? Sorry, I know for SURE they have them for the early models.

competition engineering has nothing for the 74 - 78 mustang II. I am still unable to get in contact with this myth they call stumpy. I really wish somwone could provide a solid lead like maybe a phone number or physical address. I have gotten a couple of different e-mail addresses, but I never get a reply from them.
